Franchisor and Franchisee Litigation
Franchising occurs when a business leases its business model and brand for an established period of time, as is often seen with fast food restaurants, other types of restaurants, or clothing stores. Franchising your business can be an excellent way to expand and increase revenue without having to personally take on extra responsibility. There are also many benefits for the franchisee; buying into a franchise allows a business owner to buy into an established brand that is known to be successful. Oftentimes, relationships between franchisors and franchisees are mutually beneficial.
There are times, however, when disputes arise between franchisors and franchisees. Franchise litigation can be complex, involving aspects of contract law, intellectual property law, and statutes governing interstate commerce.
